(Want more? Loving this, this, and this!) 

It's safe to say I love elbow-patch details almost as much as I love stripes and polka dots. Combine any of the two and I'm head-over-heels, lol!

If you have a slight obsession with elbow-patch sweaters and tops like I do, I've got you covered! I've quickly rounded up several that would make the cutest addition to your Fall wardrobe, and most are super affordable at less than $30 -- can't beat that!
(Just click on any of the item numbers above to shop!)

And speaking of elbow-patch pretties, let's talk about the striped, heart-elbow-patched sweater I featured in this Instragram post. Isn't it darling? I adore the pink trim and, of course, the heart-shaped elbow patches. Whenever I wear it, I get tons of questions about it. I got it from J.Crew a couple of years ago, and I'll let you in on a little secret...it's actually from the girls' Crewcuts department! Yep, that's right -- you fellow petite gals may be in luck since a girl's size 12 - 16 may fit you! Just follow the recommended size guide on the J.Crew website, and see what works best for you. I usually find that a size 12 or 14 works best on me (I'm 5'2" for reference.) It also depends on the style of the sweater; keep in mind that girls' sizes may run slightly wider since they're not cut for a woman's figure. That said, sometimes I am able to remedy this and successfully shrink them down for a better fit by washing them in hot water in the washing machine and then drying them on high heat in the dryer. (Note: if you do this, be sure to keep a watchful eye on it and periodically check it to prevent over-shrinkage!)

I hope this tip helps, and if you ever have any questions about sizing on any of the items I feature, feel free to reach out and ask and I'll be happy to help!

Which sweaters are you coveting for Fall?
